Listed on the fiction rather than the mystery list of this publisher, this will be best known in the latter category, for the feats of Albert Campion are good news to his followers. There is a more marked kinship here to Dorothy Sayers and her type of crime detection novels, for the story of the Palinodes and the monkey business pursuing their family has more body to it than the usual mystery. Campion locates queer doings at an undertaker's, at the home of the Palinodes, where they are now living as guests, and in a chemist's shop. He tracks down his "shadowy (Little Clever)" with more than a little wit, and a great deal of brilliance. Superior fare for special tastes.
